Adult freestyle beginner - struggling to breath! by Jardov
Although I've been able to swim since about 9, I could never swim freestyle (could only manage a ridiculous looking front crawl with head above water). Recently (aged 40) I decided to give freestyle a go and am now really enjoying swimming 4-5 times a week but I cannot swim more than about...

Hackett's shoulder surgery by [email protected] (Larry Weisenthal)
From reading the accounts in the Aussie papers, I surmise that Hackett had a typical, garden variety impingement-type rotator cuff tendon injury. He intends to return to high volume training at an early time, which may be a mistake, as his big problem will be recovering from the pre-existing...

Swim shoes for lake swimming? by [email protected]
You could try some neoprene socks. Otherwise, they make these shoes for wading with a rubber sole and a lightweight elastisized top, that they usually sell for less than 10 bucks at walmart, kmart, target, etc. Andres

Is anyone using the new training aid called Drag'n'Fly? (www.whitedolphin.co.uk) If so how often are you using it and what do you think of it?

page on which muscles you exercise by [email protected]
Instead of asking again & again which muscles get excercise with a given type of stroke you use, is there a (non technical) web page that's got all this info? Seb

Which is better? by Micheal Artindale
Swimming lengths or doing drills. If you were to suggest it to someone whose strokes are decent. Which would you choose, and why? Is getting lots of metres better than getting lots of technical in? I know, in a perfect world, you want the happy meduim of both. Thanks,

Map of groups by Man o' Tea
http://www.frappr.com/rst Apparently, one can use this site to create a map of member locations for any group, as rec.sport.tennis has done. It probably wouldn't make much sense for a local swim team, but maybe it would for a college team, or a masters team in a large region.

Hey Coach! by buck
As a newcomer to the freestyle I thought that I read that your hand plunge should be really close to your head when it enters the water, and then I look at movie clips of the best freestylers and it "appears" that their hand enters the water a long ways ahead of their head. Am I seeing correctly...

cut that flab by [email protected]
I got advice that if swimming more than 1 h I should have a glucose drink or else I'd collapse--sounds fine to me. But if I'm feeling really flabby and I'd rather use up that fat tissue hanging from my belly, I'd like to avoid drinking extra energy. Is the best thing to do taking breaks after every...

fear of depths in inexperienced swimmers by [email protected]
I've hardly had a swim for many years and I'm getting memories of swimming in a rocky beach at high tide. The high tide covered a lot of the rocky beach, creating a rocky landscape on the bottom. The water must have been about two stories high, and when I tried to look at the sea floor through the...

curious about a guy's practice I saw today by Pat
The guy gets into the pool and swims a furious crawl to the other end of the lane. He then stands there and bobs up and down about a dozen times before swimming back to the head of the lane. Then, he stands there and bobs up and down. He does this over and over. Can anyone tell me what he is...
